The following is a poem which was found in the possessions of Thomas Samuel Austin by his son Ianthe Exall:

 

Have you ever heard of the “Warspite” and how she made her name,

How she smashed the German Army near the wide Catania Plain,

The Herman Goering Regiment was badly mauled that day,

When the “Warspite” used her 15”, for the Eight she cleared the way.

Then came the day of invasion, the 5th.on Italy’s soil,

Battled with desperation, their object nearly foiled,

By “Tiger Tanks” and Pancers, who were waiting, so it seemed,

When into the Bay of Salerno, the “Warspite” slowly steamed.

She swung around and waited until she got in range,

Then with a noise like thunder, her 15” spoke again.

We had our own observer, a captain of Royal Marines,

And he shouted with glee, only he could see

How the tide of the battle had changed.

There were tanks and troops together smashed up like they never had been,

More terrible wreckage and carnage never before had been seen.

General Clark of the gallant 5th. Army, there on the field

Thanked the ”Old Lady” in a signal, for the lives of his men she’d redeemed.

Then she did another bombardment at a standstill, to make her aim sure,

And the fall of the shell was perfect, no guns aim had ever been truer.

It must have been ‘hell’ for the Germans, as the shrapnel just blew them away,

Then a bomb came down from the heavens, it was 2000lbs. maybe more

And smashed right down by the funnel, we were only two miles from the shore.

Right down through her decks it travelled, a rocket bomb was its name,

We lost some good chums, all good shipmates, Hard luck, it was War it’s no game.

She shuddered and lurched as it struck her, for a minute she couldn’t be seen

As the debris shot up towards heaven, closely followed by white scalding steam.

We all thought the “Old Lady” was finished, a true blood, she proved it that day,

As the tugs raced out to her rescue, she lurched up again, to her keel.

Under tow she set out for Malta, for six days and nights at 4 knots,

And the lads did plenty of thinking, especially the wounded in cots,

T’was a nerve wracking strain for the lads there, true Britons they stuck to their guns,

And the engine room branch worked like Trojans, all spattered in oil, twas no fun.

Down thro the Straits of Messina, the “Old Lady” made her way,

We were all sure then that she’d make it,

That she’d live to fight on another day.

It’s all over now, we’re not sorry, to our homes we’re now on our way,

But I’ll always be proud of the “Warspite” , God Bless her, she once won the day.

Sopwith 1 ½ Strutter by Ivan Berryman.


Sopwith 1 ½ Strutter by Ivan Berryman.

The potential value of aircraft at sea had been proven as early as the Battle of Jutland in 1916 and many experiments were undertaken to provide all significant warships with their own aircraft for spotting and reconnaissance purposes. One solution widely adopted was the fitting of flying-off platforms to the main guns, as demonstrated here, as a Sopwith 1½ strutter is launched from HMS Warspite in 1919.

The Battleship Warspite - Anatomy of the Ship by Ross Watton.


The Battleship Warspite - Anatomy of the Ship by Ross Watton.

The Anatomy of the Ship series provides documentation of individual ships and ship types. The books are illustrated with line drawings, both the conventional type of plan as well as explanatory views, with fully descriptive keys. These are supported by technical details and a record of the ships service history. HMS Warspite was arguably one of the finest capital ship designs of all time. Warspite and her four sister ships of the Queen Elizabeth class were the prototypes of the modern fast battleship, the ultimate development of the Dreadnought type. Warspite had one of the most active and successful fighting careers. Her service spanned two generations from Jutland in 1916, the last great surface engagement between battle fleets, where she received many hits, to the dawn of the missile age (she was badly damaged by a guided bomb in 1943) with battle honours that also included Narvik, Matapan and the D-Day landings. The Old Lady, as she was affectionately known during World War II, w.........

Popularly known as The Old Lady, Warspite was launched on 26th November 1913 and was still fulfilling a crucial role at the end of World War II. Even after being paid off, she escaped being broken up by going aground at Mounts Bay whilst on tow to the breakers yard. During the two world wars, Warspite accumulated fourteen Battle Honours including Jutland May 1916. She is shown in company with HMS Royal Sovereign in the Mediterranean in May 1940 when she was Fleet Flag.

HMS Barham leads the 5th Battle Squadon at Jutland by Anthony Saunders.


HMS Barham leads the 5th Battle Squadon at Jutland by Anthony Saunders.

The greatest naval battle of the First World War took place on the 31st of May and the 1st of June 1916, near the Danish province of Jutland. It was the first and only sea battle between the British and German fleets, and certainly proved to be the clash of the Titans that the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill, had long planned. Decisive victory was claimed by both sides, but, desperately fought though it was, the outcome was indecisive. The Royal Navy suffered higher losses in both men and ships, but the German fleet never ventured out of harbour to seek battle again. During the daylight fighting HMS Barham, under Rear Admiral Evan-Thomas, lead the 5th Battle Squadron (Valiant, Warspite and Malaya) and is seen here at 4.50pm exchanging with Hippers battle-cruisers to the south.

 Regarded by some in the Air Ministry as a failed fighter, the mighty Hawker Typhoon was unrivalled as a ground attack aircraft, especially in the crucial months immediately prior to – and after – D-Day when squadrons of Typhoons operated in 'cab ranks' to smash the German infrastructure and smooth the passage of the invading allied force.  This aircraft is Mk.1B (MN570) of Wing Commander R E P Brooker of 123 Wing based at Thorney Island.

 Paratroopers of the 1st Battalion sort their kit out and get ready to enplane the waiting American Dakota C-47s of the 14 and 59 Squadrons/61st Troop Carrier Group.  The paratroops took off simultaneously from Saltby and Barkston, commencing at 1121.  All planes were in the air by 1155.  A relatively uneventful trip over the northern route to the Netherlands resulted in not a plane being shot down; only five were slightly damaged.  The 1st Battalion were dropped at 1403, 2nd Battalion at 1353 and the 3rd Battalion at 1356, all at DZ-X, west of Wolfhezen some eight miles west of Arnhem.  The Battalion orders were for three different routes to the Arnhem Bridge.  1st Battalion took the Leopard route, 2nd Battalion Tiger route and the 3rd Battalion Lion route.  Only the 2nd Battalion, commanded by Lt colonel John Frost managed to fight their way to the bridge.

 Under pressure from Stalin to open a second front in Europe, Operation Jubilee was designed ostensibly as a reconnaissance in force on the French coast, to show the feasibility of taking and holding a major defended port for a day, in this case Dieppe. The plan devised by Lord Louis Mountbatten failed due to inadequate naval and air support, carrying out the landing in daylight and general lack of intelligence of the target. Here new Churchill tanks of the 14th Canadian Tank Regiment (The Calgary Regiment), with men of the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry and Fusiliers Mont-Royals, struggle to fight their way off the beach. Only a handful of men penetrated into the town itself, and eventually the remaining troops were ordered to withdraw. Out of 5086 soldiers who landed only 1443 returned.

 Kentucky - born Steve Cauthen was just 12 years old when his father Tex finally agreed to help the single-minded young man realise a burning ambition to become a jockey provided he didnt let success make him big-headed.  No parental proviso was ever more faithfully fulfilled.  In the year of his seventeenth birthday the kid rode 487 winners of 6 million dollars, including the U.S. Triple Crown on Affirmed.  He went on to captivate British hearts two years later.  By 1984 he was champion. But better was to come. No wonder the fairytale ingredients of 1985 have fired the imagination and talent of Peter Deighan to such compelling effect.

David Coulthard made his Grand Prix debut at the Spanish Grand Prix in 1994.  Only an electrical problem with his Williams Renault stopped Coulthard finishing 3rd in his first ever Grand Prix.  This performance was enough to confirm his potential and earn a drive for the 1995 season.  Winning at Estoril, on the podium at Interlagos, Magny-Cours, Silverstone, Hockenheim, Hungaroring and T I Aida, placed him third in the championship in his first full Grand Prix season.  Coulthard moved to McLaren for the 1996 season proving on many occasions that he could match the pace of team leader Mika Hakkinen, who has a reputation as one of the fastest.  For 1997, Coulthard took over the mantle of Britains No.1 driver and was well qualified to do so.  Winning at Melbourne and Monza, second at A1 Ring and Jerez.  Fourth in the championship prior to Schumachers exclusion.  Coulthard drives with a balance of flair and aggression which earned him considerable respect.  After nearly fifteen years as a top flight driver, Coulthard has now retired from driving, leaving a remarkable legacy behind him.  Twice winner of the British Grand Prix in 1999 and 2000, he has represented Scotland and Great Britain at the highest level of motorsport for well over a decade.

 It was Saturday 4th May 2002, the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.  Wonderful goals by Ray Parlour and Freddie Ljungberg for Arsenal were too much for their London rivals Chelsea to capture the FA Cup.  Four days later, on Wednesday 8th, Arsenal rode into Old Trafford.  This time a goal by Sylvain Wiltord on his 100th appearance for the club was enough for Arsene Wenger's team to overcome Manchester United and clinch the Premiership title, maintaining a record of scoring in every league game of the season.  For the second time in four years under their long-serving and inspirational captain Tony Adams, Arsenal had performed the classic double of English football, the third in their history making 2001-02, a season never to be forgotten.
